The BC Entertainment Hall of Fame (BCEHOF) has added six new inductees to its roster.
The two new StarWalk Stars and four StarMeritus Stars from the world of music, dance, theatre, film and television will join the over 300 previous inductees who have been recognized for their significant contribution to the province’s entertainment industry and cultural landscape.
Recognizing “high profile artists” in the entertainment industry, the StarWalk Stars inductees this year are Walter Daroshin, a film and television producer and the president and founder of the Leo Awards, British Columbia’s annual film and television industry awards and R. Paul Dhillon, an award-winning screenwriter, producer, and director.
StarWalk inductees are recognized with a featured star on the Walk of Fame on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver and on the StarWall Gallery at the Orpheum Theatre.
The StarMeritus Stars are reserved for the industry’s pioneers, recognizing their outstanding contribution to the performing arts in British Columbia by enhancing the province’s cultural profile both locally and on the world stage.
This year’s recipients are musician Don Alder, actor, singer, and arts advocate Candus Churchill, BC music industry pioneer and Juno Award-winning musician Lynne Partridge, and manager, producer and entertainment publicist Valerie (“Valley”) Hennell.
“The BCEHOF is proud and excited to present a very diverse and impressive group of StarMeritus and StarWalk inductees who represent artistic excellence in British Columbia,” says BCEHOF President Rob Haynes in a media release. “While we are limited this year due to COVID-19, we look forward to scheduling and celebrating their individual inductions over the coming months to honour their contribution.”
